I think the little starfish quiltlet is finished.  I've considered adding a fish or two, but really, this quilt is about the starfish.  Fish beads or buttons would distract from the star of the show, don't you think?

Here's a close-up.  Once I'd done the embroidered seaweed, I added some shredding.  I don't know what else to call it.  It's the threads that shred from fabric, when you pre-wash it.  I've been saving them for a while, and love putting them to use.  Once that was in place, I dug into my shell/ocean-themed goodie box, and started stitching.
So there you go, a quick and easy project, that was finished in less than a week.  Really, it was probably finished in less than 6 hours.  Piece of cake!

And now, I'm on to the next thing.  HappyQuilting!

So I thought this one was smaller than it actually is. Ha! Love the idea of the shredding. I was surprised that you did the embroider work after it was quilted. Do you not go through all the way to the back?

Thanks for show me how you do it.
